SCARLET-W represents the passion and dedication to carrying on the legacy started by RED ONE®—disrupting the industry and delivering a camera of unparalleled quality and acessibility to content creators everywhere. And now RED has changed the industry again, with the SCARLET-W, powered by a REDDRAGON® sensor and featuring interchangeable lens mounts and OLPFs.
SCARLET-W harnesses the RAW performance, advanced color science, and impressive dynamic range of the RED DRAGON sensor.
